Easter Sunday Massacre: People sacrificed for election victory despite intelligence: Cardinal (VIDEO)

Sri Lanka’s head of state and high ranking officials at the time of the Easter Sunday Massacre had sacrificed the lives of innocent people for an election victory by concealing intelligence received on the attacks, said Archbishop of Colombo His Eminence Malcolm Cardinal Ranjith addressing the special service at St. Anthony’s Church in Padua, Italy yesterday (01).

“We were no informed, had we been informed, we could have saved these people’s lives. The lives of the innocent people were sacrificed because we were not informed; because of the lust of power. It was covered up in the emergence of the lust for power. Every person from the President, the high ranking officials and the officials in charge of defence had neglected their responsibilities. This was done deliberately, for the purpose of an election victory. There was a need for an election victory, which was the motive behind it. They had the need to convince the people that they were the ones who can protect and serve justice to the country. That was why it was committed. Otherwise, we could have been informed by those who were aware, that such an event was about to happen and we were supposed to protect ourselves. But they, the officials and the politicians, exchanged a letter among themselves and saved their own skins. The innocent people were sacrificed.”
